Asia Bibi moved to isolation cell
Catholic World News - January 27, 2011
Asia Bibi, the 45-year-old Christian mother of five whose death sentence on blasphemy charges has provoked an international outcry, has been moved to an isolation cell in her Pakistani prison for her own protection. Her husband, Ashiq Masih, told the Fides news agency that two guards watch her cell constantly and that she is being given raw food to decrease the risk of being poisoned.
